Murphy's Other Laws

Light travels faster than sound . This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

The 50-50-90 rule:Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog.

If the shoe fits, get another one just like it for the other foot.

The things that come to those who wait, will be the things left by those who got there first.

Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

When you go into court, you are putting yourself
in the hands of 12 people who are not smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Too true Judy.

Dave said...

Good list, I think that we can all empathise with most of these. Here from Michele's today.

I used to have a bumper sticker that said He who laughs last thinks slowest. You wouldn't believe how many people mentioned seeing it.

Yeah I totally identify with the flashlight one, too.

And if it takes "C" batteries, you can bet I'm only going to have "D" batteries around the house. And vice versa.

Shins find furniture and so do toes. I've stubbed my big toes and my baby toes many times. OUCH!!

The "laughs last" is my favorite Judy. It's particularly funny in a movie theatre where out-of-phase laughs are so obvious.

Michele sent me to see your list and be reminded that I need to reformat my memory card since I nearly filled it up over the weekend.

ET said...

The second one is me. People here me say, "Now I get it!" often.

LOL, LOL...These are delightful, Judy! I love this kind of humor...it's kind of the ERma Bomback school of laughs which was perfect!

srp said...

These are so true.
It's a shame about the last one. The lawyers try to get rid of anyone who will really think about the case. And heaven forbid they know something.

Karen said...

Judy, those are hilarious, and oh, so true. Loved all of them! Thanks for sharing!

Michele sent me here tonight. Hope you had a great day!

I didn't think the first one could be topped... until I read the one about cars lined end to end around the earth and someone trying to pass them. lol

Pinkie toes are for finding furniture in a dark room too.
